AAA Cards Challenge #123 - Sketch

The first Sunday in September and time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight it's a sketch to help you play CAS.

Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor for this challenge and I've used stamps from their Let It snow set for my card:

Once I'd die cut the circular aperture I then inked up the space behind it in cool icy colours. I then stamped and heat embossed the snowflake using sparkly white embossing powder.

I added a sentiment from the same set and I was done. Lots of lovely empty, non-patterned, non-textured white space to keep my card CAS.

Stamps: HLS, Let It Snow
Inks: Ranger distress, lucky clover, cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch; Versafine, clear + WOW! sparkling snow embossing powder
Die: MFT Die-namics, inside/out stitched circles

The thing I love about a sketch is that every card looks different even though it started from the same place. Do pop over to the AAA Cards blog to check out how the rest of the DT have used it and then get busy creating your own CAS masterpiece.

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

And keep crafting!
